Full description

Immerse yourself in the picturesque Tuscan scenery on a sightseeing trip to the beautiful region of Chianti. Explore the gardens of the Brolio Castle and visit the Castellina in Chianti before enjoying wine and local product tastings at 2 wineries in the Chianti area.

The beautiful ruby-red color and the characteristic bouquet with scents of violet are the special features that reveal the identity of one of the most famous wines in the world: Chianti. This wine results from the wise blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

On this trip, discover the breathtaking, uncontaminated landscapes that have been cradling the Chianti vineyards for centuries, presenting you with a harmony of colors that can only be found in the hills of this region.

The sounds, scents, and flavors of this land will capture your senses through a unique experience. Visit ancient churches, medieval castles, and small villages where the rhythm of life remains unaltered over time.

The tour continues with a visit to a charming wine estate. Here, you'll have the chance to see the area close to the famous Castle of Brolio and join a guided walk of the castle gardens. When the tour of the garden ends, join a wine tasting paired with typical Tuscan food.

Later, move on to another winery in the middle of the Chianti Classico area, where you’ll have a second wine tasting alongside an extra virgin olive oil tasting. The tour will end with a return to Siena.

This tour was a lot of backroads driving and not much time at the castles. You don’t actually tour the castles, you can walk around them. The view was amazing and the countryside, though a few of us were car sick from the high speed country roads between towns. The guide is really just a driver. He seems to know the area well, but didn’t offer a lot of information as we drove.

Our driver was both very knowledgeable and fun. We visited two beautiful wineries and one medieval village. I wouldn't really call it a "castle tour" because we did not tour any castles. But it was a thoroughly enjoyable day in spectacular countryside. The rolling hills, the beautiful Tuscan weather (we went in February -- no crowds, beautiful bright blue skies, perfect) and one winery in particular that has been operated by one family for many generations. The settings were gorgeous.

Very nice guide and wonderful tour!

The guide came to pick us up directly at the hotel and accompanied our group (8 people) to visit the medieval village of Monteriggioni. The stop here may be a bit short but it is really worth it. We then visited two wineries in the Chianti area and were welcomed by the owners of the farms. At the end of the two visits the guide took us back to the hotel, all the way he told the curiosity and history of the place. Highly recommended !!!
